As it has already been announced stats tracker now offers a gamespy master server replacement.

Image

You can enable it in 2 clicks, either by editing hosts file or installing a patch.

  • To use the first option, paste these lines at the bottom of C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts

    Code:
    62.210.142.5  swat4.available.gamespy.com
    62.210.142.5  swat4.master.gamespy.com
    62.210.142.5  swat4.ms15.gamespy.com

  • If you have a problem editing the hosts file, you can install this patch instead

More info for both players and server owners can be found here


P.S. Many thanks to BaDTimE :D for all the research he has done on this matter!

Sun has made a video explaining an alternative (perhaps simplier) way of patching hosts

https://vimeo.com/172786167




If you still struggle with the hosts file, there is a small patch available for all versions of SWAT

Thanks for your effort serge, this is the best thing happened to swat since the shutting down of gamespy.

Personally I think the patch file is more simple way for people, its like antics a copy-paste system.
Thanks to our Ronaldinho of swat too Badtime, maybe we buy him a jar of beer if he keeps the good work :P
I will advertise that to all forums I know.

Have a great day

Good job m8s!

I tried to do just that a little while ago but I was stuck with parts of the protocol I did not understand, so my PoC was put on hold.

I had established contacts in the attempt of getting DNS delegation of the GameSpy subdomains at the time of my little experiment, but since I had not got anything working I did not go further.
Now that something is working it might be a good time to try to convince owners to give us a hand.
I'll let you know if something arises.
